Geert Schuiling

Geert Schuiling has always had a passion for making things by hand and has been recycling to create useful and fun items long before it became fashionable. He built up his leather business to four shops and a factory employing in excess of 60 people producing watch straps, belts, satchels, handbags , sandals, shoes and other items based on customer demand.

Since joining Woodheads 20 years ago, he has worked with business, NGOs, designers and customers in styling, pattern making and producing leather products. He also wrote training manuals and offers training to develop the skills required for making leather goods such as sandals, sheepskin slippers and satchels. Working alongside well-known designers and interior décor companies, Geert loves creating new ranges and bespoke items for the local and international markets. He is married with three children and lives in Milnerton, Cape Town.
